Interests and Personality

BiographyI've lived in almost as many places as years that I have been alive. I've been an artist since birth working in everything from drawing and painting to photography, sculpture and collage. My life experiences are what shape my work. I attended college for photography but have chosen to pursue my career in painting. I am also the curator and co-director for d.ART gallery in Massachusetts. We pride ourselves in presenting uniquely talented artists. I am always looking for artists, however I do not show artists just because they are my friends, the work needs to be able to stand on its own. Work is always seporate from friendship and my gallery is always seporate from my own artwork. I show in other galleries, professionalism is extremely important.
InterestsArt, Music and so much more.
Musicall diferent kinds, its really all about the skill of the musician and being able to relate to the material.
Filmstoo many to mention here.
Televisionno crap, just things like The Simpsons, Real Time with Bill Maher, Robot Chicken...
Bookstoo many to mention here, I need more shelves at home.
